>> jadiann: all right. good morning to you, everyone. just about 5:15 right now if you're waking up. boy, i wish i was still under the covers. >> christa: kind of like your kids and the dogs, do right? just full on with the covers. >> jadiann: if you are, good morning as you wake up. maybe a little more chilly today. >> christa: yeah. j.r., it was so nice to go without a coat yesterday. sweater weather practically yesterday. >> jeremy: very nice the last few days. much cooler today. again, the numbers you'll see on
5:14 am
seasonal. the thing is, when you're near 60 on sunday, upper 50s yesterday, it is a shock to the system, much cooler, more like december. a lot of clouds, as well. there might be a couple rain showers on the cape. i don't think anywhere else we have the risk of showers because it's an ocean storm that remains out over the ocean, and overall the pattern is a mild pattern. forecast. 30s and 40s. plymouth 459. jaffrey with clear skies at 29. here's the wind. it's not overwhelming or damaging, but it's from the north east anywhere between 5 and 15mph. and this time of year, that only adds more chill to the air. so the wind-chill out there right now feels like the low 30s. it feels like 31 in the city. bedford feels like 32. mostly cloudy skies. here is that storm system. it's not that far away, but this is about as far north as it's going to get to the cape and the islands. i think around the metro, clouds sprinkle. but that would be about it. i don't think there would be
5:15 am
plymouth, middleborough. i think south of there is where you have the best chance of the showers. so through the day, mostly cloudy skies, much cooler. temps between 44 and 48. this afternoon the city around 46. billerica 45. hyannis with raindrops at 48. tonight partly cloudy, cold, lows in the upper 20s to around 30 degrees. and for tomorrow, again, mostly cloudy skies. seasonal tomorrow with temperatures tomorrow into the upper 40s. so again, tomorrow with less wind, it's probably more manageable to be outside. normal high of 44. so here you are today and tomorrow, 40s. you notice by thursday and friday, the numbers heading back into the upper 50s. 57 on thursday, friday at 58. there may be an isolated rain showers thursday morning, but otherwise thursday's a dry day. jetstream continues to do this, it's been doing this now for i would say the last three to four weeks. that's why november was so warm. december off to a warm start. this is an el nio winter. typically when you have el nio
5:16 am
as you work through wintertime and get to the back side of winter, that's when you start the find more and more cold and snow. 7 on 7 forecast, no cold or snow in the forecast, but today is a chilly day. mid-40s. friday and saturday, upper 50s to around 60. sunday a lot of clouds. temperatures on sunday upper 50s to around 60. >> jadiann: all right. thank you, j.r. well, she has been called "the hidden kennedy daughter." rosemary kennedy was the third child of joseph and rose kennedy, the sister of j.f.k. >> christa: she lived a very, very different life than her high-profile siblings, and she also inspired them to really change the way people think about people with disabilities. >> kennedy girls, eunice left 16 and rosemary 19. the young man is brother jack. >> hi, rosie. >> hi, jack. >> christa: that's one of the few times the world heard from rosemary, but the kennedy siblings would change the way the world thought about people with disabilities.
5:17 am
of a woman in my family who had very little intellectual capacity compared to my uncle jack or bobby or my mom or dad but had that hidden gift that only comes from god. >> christa: like her older brothers, rosemary was been at home in brookline, but this time there were complications. >> rose was ready to deliver rosemary, but the nurse held the baby back in the birth canal to wait for the doctor to arrive, and of course that deprived rosemary to lack of oxygen. we link her disabilities to that moment. >> christa: kate clifford larson wrote the bestseller "rosemary: the hidden kennedy daughter." she says for years rosemary attended special schools but always traveled to the family. when her father became ambassador to england, they all proved to london. >> this was the best time of rosemary's life. >> christa: world war ii forced everyone home. >> that was the beginning of the end. she would sneak out of another school at night in washington, d.c.
5:18 am
was. this frightened the family, so joe decided that he needed to do something about it quickly. >> christa: the decision, rosemary would have a lobotomy, an operation on the brain that doctors no longer perform. >> she had to learn to walk and talk and move, function afterward because she couldn't do anything. the lobotomy went terribly wrong. >> christa: her parents then sent rose marery to live with nuns in wisconsin. >> rose did not see her daughter for 20 years. >> her brother jack did visit. >> in 1958 when he was campaigning to president, he went to wisconsin and made a secret visit to his sister that. was first person to see her. >> christa: eventually rosemary's sister eunice took responsibility for her care and urging her brother, the president, into action. >> eunice forced the administration to pay attention and pass legislation for families, for individuals with disabilities. she went on to found the special olympics.
5:19 am
anthony shriver is also carrying on her legacy. he created best buddy, national organization that helps create opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. >> people with intellectual disabilities like rosemary matter and count and can participate in a whole variety of different ways. you never know where the inspiration will come from and what will move the needle, but she proved the need until a big way. >> christa: rosemary died in wisconsin in 2005. she was 82 years old. >> in spite of the tragedy that happened to rosemary, her legacy is this powerful accommodation and world that we live in now for people with disabilities. >> christa: and i've actually had the opportunity to ride in the best buddies challenge. it's an annual bike ride involving thousands of riders from boston to hyannis port. anthony shriver says it's really important to him that the group's biggest event take place there close, of course, to the places where rosemary and her times together.
5:20 am
amazing event. >> jadiann: what a great story, crystal. thanks for sharing that up. up next in 7sports, the celtics wrapping up a five-game road trip. could they finish with a win in new orleans? highlights coming up. >> christa: also the results of "who did it better?" we're going to find out if jadiann can pull off another win in the aquarium challenge. we'll be right back. and this is how it works. most new wealth flows to the top 1%. it's a system held in place where wall street banks and billionaires buy elections.
5:21 am
a million small contributions, people like you who want to fight back. the truth is you can't change a corrupt system by taking its money. i'm bernie sanders. i approve this message. join us for real change. why let someone else have all the fun? the sometimes haphazard, never boring fun. the why can't it smell like
